Cheap Thrills

Winner of both the Audience Award and the prize for Best First Feature at SXSW 2013, this appallingly hilarious black comedy examines how low people will go for money. An auto mechanic and new father (Pat Healy) is laid off the same day he finds an eviction notice on his front door. He finds salvation at a local bar in the form of a bored, wealthy couple who are willing to pay a lot of cash if he will make good on a series of outrageous, escalating dares. With David Koechner (Anchorman). “This is dark comedy indeed, and if viewed as such, it works deliciously.” –The NY Times

Adults only! Blu-ray. 88 min.
